Find the right group, and all is well. US and Canada Tech Writers are paid hourly with OT. How much OT allowed varies by manager.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I'm sad to say that the number of pros is shrinking every year Pay is generally good

    Cons

    Layoffs are becoming commonplace and morale is sinking! Competition is growing in many areas - routing, switching, security, collaboration Very few opportunities to advance

    Advice to Management

    Cut some of the fat at the top and stop cutting individual contributors. It's getting harder and harder for teams to get their jobs done.
